Gaura 'Summer Breeze'
One of the most cold-tolerant cultivars of Gaura available, 'Summer Breeze' reliably self-seeds if conditions are right, or you can save seed and sow again next year to ensure a predictable garden display. An excellent addition to the cottage garden.
Gauras have a long taproot and dislike being moved once established. Select a position with good drainage to prevent root rot. Drought tolerant once established, water regularly when first planted. Prune hard after flowering in autumn to improve overall shape and performance. Do not plant near disturbed or overgrazed areas where it easily takes hold.
